Union Chain Bridge
This chain-link bridge (as distinct from a cable suspension bridge) was built in 1819-20 by Capt. S. Brown R.N. at a cost of 5000. When it was built this was the longest suspension bridge in the world. The deck is of iron girders with a wooden roadway.

The English side of the bridge is listed grade 1 (list entry number 1042214) and a Scheduled Ancient Monument; the Scottish side is listed category A (reference 13645).
